As I mentioned in my previous post about THE WEDDING... family was one of my favorite things.
My family is spread out all over the place so it is always so nice to get a chance to catch up.
And laugh your brains out.
Especially when this guy is around...
He was born that way.
After the wedding, we had the pleasure of hanging out at the beach house for the evening.
Getting caught up on loved ones, enjoying the absolute preciousness of sweet Lillian, and hearing tales and techniques of the wedding decor.
And eating MORE cake!
I stole this picture off of Angela's blog to show you the beauty of this delight before it was ravaged. By the time I got my hands on it, it was in leftover form. But still just as amazing!
And yes, that means that I ate FOUR different kinds of cake in one day.
Let's just say that my insides hated me for about a week.
But it was totally worth it.
At some point during the evening... my Dad ended up like this...
When you have been around him long enough... you just get used to it.
I totally meant to take tons of picture this evening..... but between eating cake and well, eating more cake... I didn't really get any.
I hate it when I do that.
The other highlights of the weekend included staying at my Aunt Laurie's house ( so full of memories!! ) and our epic road trip.
My road trip companions consisted of Bethany and Teddy - going and coming back.
Our trip up was very late and pretty uneventful except for lots of talking ( between Bethany and me) and a scavenger hunt for food around 10pm.
Side note: Why is it SO hard to find a place quick place that has healthy, vegetarian food that also has something for Teddy to eat?? Subway would have been perfect - but it was closed. We drove all over and finally came across a Chick-fil-a. It worked out ok - but I think all Bethany ate was a piece of lettuce. Did I mention that Bethany is not only vegetarian... but also picky?
We are a trio of food issues.
Anyhoo, our trip coming home was where it was at. I don't know if it was out of deliriousness, or sugar highs from all the cake, or we just decided to reveal our true craziness... but I'm telling you that I haven't laughed that hard in .... forever.
There was a point that I was laughing so hard that I could barely park at the rest stop... let alone walk in to the bathroom. I was trying SO hard to keep my laughter in that my face was contorted to the point that I probably looked like I had rabies.
And as soon as I got in to the stall... I just let it all out.
My LAUGH that is!
Unfortunately, there is no point in telling you what was so funny... because it was a million different things.... and things that no one would think was funny but us.
But things that still make me laugh to this day.
Oh. And we also played Outburst Jr.
Because being successful at winning a game labeled "Jr." makes us feel better about ourselves.
The weekend was over way too fast. Our road trip was over way too fast.
But one thing that I know for sure is that I know who I'm taking on my next road trip. And I'm going to make it a trip that is longer than three hours.
And also, that my new cake love is pineapple in upside down form.
